Why is art so expressive?

Artistic creation is a unique form of communication, which is almost completely based on expression to form the basis of their individual character. In other words, each act of communication has its own unique expressive imprint, its own character, its own speed and meaning. For emotions to move freely through us, they must be accepted and expressed. Doing so encourages us and fuels our creativity.

Fortunately, experiencing emotions directly through art is quite simple, if you consider the process. The general opinion is that the ability of works of art to awaken emotions in the public is a perfectly natural and trouble-free fact. It seems obvious that we can feel sadness or pity for fictional characters, fear when seeing menacing monsters on the movie screen, and joy when listening to happy and joyful songs. This may be the reason why many of us are consumers of art in the first place.

Many of us tend to think that good art should not leave us indifferent. Unlike some forms of art therapy, ExA does not interpret art and adds meanings such as: “You drew this to mean this”. If you're obsessed with staying “safe” with art or worried about what others think your art should be, you'll end up not revealing much about yourself. Art as a representation of external existence (it is true that “seen through a temperament”) has been replaced by art as an expression of the inner life of the human being.

The expressive arts are a healing and healing discipline that uses the arts as a basis for discovery and change. Collingwood considers art as an expression at the level of imagination; for Croce, art is an intuitive expression.
